Vehicular accidents are some of the top causes of injury cases. Being that we live in the Sunshine State, our law firm handles cases involving both land and water vehicles.
Florida is one of the worst states for car accidents with almost 400,000 crashes statewide in 2017, as reported by The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Sometimes injuries are obvious immediately after an accident, but most may not become apparent until hours or days after an accident. No matter how minor an injury may be from an accident, if it affects your way of living you should contact an experienced vehicle accident attorney to handle your case and help you deal with the insurance company.
Insurance companies are notorious for doing whatever it takes to prevent paying you what you deserve after an accident. We are prepared to go head-to-head with any insurance company to ensure that you receive just compensation for the accident and any sustained injuries. At Klausman Law, you will always have an attorney handle your case, not a caseworker or paralegal. We do not shuffle your case off to a caseworker or give it to a paralegal to handle, so you can rest assured that you will be receiving the legal expertise you deserve.
Florida has one of the highest uninsured driver populations in the country. According to a study performed by the Insurance Information Institute, 23.8% of motorists in Florida are uninsured. If you are ever involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, you could end up with thousands of dollars in unpaid medical expenses.
Uninsured motorist coverage protects you, your family, and passengers in your vehicle, when injuries and damages are caused by vehicles that do not have sufficient insurance coverage to pay for the damages. For myself and my family, I purchase the maximum available in uninsured motorist coverage. Why? Because all too often I see cases where people suffer injuries and the person who caused the injuries does not have enough insurance to pay for the damage they caused. That’s where uninsured motorist coverage steps in and acts as the at fault person’s insurance coverage and pays uninsured motorist coverage for the injuries and damages caused by the uninsured or under-insured at fault party. Your insurance company then has the ability to pursue payment from the at fault driver for the money the insurance company has paid under your uninsured motorist coverage. We recommend to all of our clients that they obtain as much uninsured motorist coverage as they can afford.

My father and mother taught me to always treat people the way you would want them you treat you. To put yourself in the other person’s shoes to understand the way they see things. To try to do your best at everything you do. To make as many friends as you can, because you never have too many.
My first job after law school was with the Public Defender’s office in Sanford and then in Orlando. I was in court every week the five years I was an assistant Public Defender. Some of the best trial lawyers get their start as assistant Public Defenders. You learn trial skills, effective communicating, and you develop your reputation in the legal community. The downside is as you become better and better as a Public Defender, you are called upon to represent those accused of more serious and heinous crimes…
